Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1294 - Entering The Mine
Heavenly Lady Yan's gaze landed on Shu Jun, and she said plainly, "Your adopted son has a big head. He reminds me of an old friend…"
Shu Jun lowered his head and didn't dare to speak.
Celestial Empress had indeed seen him before and was very familiar with him.
Qin Mu said with a warm smile, "Which old friend did Heavenly Consort recall? Maybe I know him too."
Heavenly Lady Yan shook her head. "He's been dead for a long time, so it's impossible for you to have seen him. Celestial Venerable Mu, your adopted son is not bad, but it's a waste to follow you. Your abilities aren't high, so you can't teach him anything. Can you give him to me?"
Qin Mu laughed. "It's not impossible to give it to you."
Shu Jun's heart tightened, and Qin Mu continued, "However, your white cat will be jealous, and if Celestial Venerable Xiao finds out, he'll probably beat me to death."
Heavenly Lady Yan snorted and was about to speak when she suddenly looked at the crack in the sky of the ancestral court.
Qin Mu felt something and looked over as well. He saw a Celestial Venerable Treasure Carriage sailing out from the crack and heading towards a fleet of ships that were flying towards the crack.
"Ancestral God King has arrived!"
Heavenly Lady Yan said with a smile that wasn't quite a smile, "In the past few years, void beasts have frequently formed groups to attack the treasured ships transporting the treasure vaults and loot the treasures mined from our respective mines. Looks like Ancestral God King is planning to find out the mastermind."
Qin Mu's heart jumped, and he remembered the scene of the dragon qilin riding the void beast mother out on patrol. He instantly understood what the dragon qilin had been doing for the past few years.
The ten Celestial Venerables had their own territories in the ancestral court. Although only the Tai Chu, Tai Shi, and Tai Su mines fell into the hands of Celestial Venerable Xiao, Celestial Venerable Gong, and Heavenly Lady Yan, the other divine metal mines were no small matter.
It was obvious that after the dragon qilin took control of the void beast, he rampaged through the ancestral court. Every time the treasured ship in the territory of the ten Celestial Venerables left the ancestral court, he would lead the void beast to loot it!
This time, Ancestral God King must have set up a trap for the dragon qilin to enter!
'Fatty Dragon is still not mature enough!'
Qin Mu was secretly anxious, but his expression didn't change. "To be able to control the void beast mother to rob the ten Celestial Venerables' treasured ships, it must have been done by the Grand Emperor. Goddess, the Grand Emperor is hiding among us. This person is sinister and cunning. He probably stole his own treasured ships and tried to bluff his way out."
Heavenly Lady Yan said indifferently, "With Ancestral God King personally taking action, we will be able to find the Grand Emperor that is hiding between us."
The back of Qin Mu's neck was covered in sweat.
If Ancestral God King captured the dragon qilin, wouldn't the ten Celestial Venerables assume that Qin Mu was the mastermind?
At that time, the ten Celestial Venerables would place the title of Grand Emperor on Qin Mu's head. Wouldn't it be perfectly justifiable to kill him? They could even use the excuse that the Grand Emperor had given birth to Celestial Venerable Mu and killed Qin Mu to avenge him.
At that time, even if he was wronged, he had no way to redress it!
Suddenly, Ancestral God King's carriage didn't meet his fleet. Instead, it turned around and headed straight for the ancestral court!
"Ancestral God King discovered Mother Earth!"
Qin Mu and Heavenly Lady Yan's hearts stirred. Only Mother Earth could make Ancestral God King give up on this fleet!
Ancestral God King's power in Xuandu had been uprooted by Mother Earth, causing his power to be wiped out!
These powers had been nurtured by Ancestral God King for countless years to reach their current scale. His hatred for Mother Earth could be imagined!
Qin Mu secretly let out a sigh of relief.
An abyss appeared in the void. Heavenly Lady Yan walked into it, and it vanished.
Qin Mu's gaze flickered. Heavenly Lady Yan should have gone after Ancestral God King.
Shu Jun also let out a sigh of relief. He glanced at Qin Mu and said unhappily, "Godfather?"
Qin Mu said solemnly, "Be careful Heavenly Lady Yan hasn't gone far."
Shu Jun was astonished and could only suppress his anger. "I won't die even if he takes advantage of me. Forget it."
After a moment, Qin Mu's face sank, and he sneered. "Brother Divine King, you are too careless! If it wasn't for me, you would have died long ago! Mother Earth was the first to die, and Heavenly Lady Yan was the next. It's fine if you aren't careful, but you almost implicated me!"
Shu Jun immediately smiled apologetically. "I know I'm wrong. Aren't you taking advantage of me? I even called you godfather!"
Qin Mu relaxed his expression and said, "There won't be a next time."
Shu Jun nodded his head repeatedly and suddenly came to a realization. "I wanted to criticize him, but I forgot after he interrupted me! This bastard is getting harder to deal with!"
Qin Mu asked, "You were also alarmed by that dragon Xiao and rushed here?"
Shu Jun nodded. "That's Divine King Bo's mount. Actually, it can't be said to be a mount. Long Xiao's combat power is much stronger than Bo Yang's. He's the ancestor of all the behemoths, and he can be said to be an ancient god among the behemoths. This behemoth was the guardian of the primordial era, and even the ancient gods were afraid of him. I didn't expect him to still be alive. I was greedy. I immediately rushed over when I saw him to see if I could subdue him."
Qin Mu shook his head. "Subdue him? Even the Grand Emperor might not be able to do it. With your current attainments in consciousness, you still can't subdue him."
Shu Jun sighed. He was reluctant to part with Long Xiao.
'However, the appearance of Long Xiao has alerted me. I don't know what's hidden behind these worlds. If Mother Earth summons the huge beasts in the dark, she will probably start a bloody battle in the ancestral court. She will borrow the power of these huge beasts to destroy the territories of the ten Celestial Venerables and seize the treasures that the ten Celestial Venerables use to suppress fate…'
When Qin Mu said this, he shuddered.
Countless huge beasts had died, and if the strong practitioners of the previous era used blood sacrifices to steal them, the seal would probably loosen!
At that time, Tai Yi might be in a terrible fix again, and there might even be experts from the last great era that would come running out!
"This kind of thing should give Tai Yi a headache."
He couldn't help but shake his head. "Brother Divine King, go through the void and inform Fatty Dragon that Ancestral God King has already come to the ancestral court. Tell him not to act recklessly."
Shu Jun left.
Qin Mu calmed his mind and calculated for a moment before walking out of the void.
"Now that Heavenly Lady Yan has gone to meet Ancestral God King and isn't in the Tai Shi Mine, I'll take this chance to retrieve the Tai Shi Origin Stone!"
Not long after, he returned to the Taishi mine. Xiu Hongsu said in astonishment, "In just a few days, Celestial Venerable has full confidence in resisting the strangeness of the mine?"
Qin Mu shook his head and sighed. "I'm not confident at all. However, I still have to give it a try, or else I won't die in peace!"
Xiu Hongsu smiled and said, "Celestial Venerable, you don't have to be so pessimistic. If you can't enter, just come back."
She sent Qin Mu to the mine and said, "Even though this mine doesn't look big, it's actually very big and very dangerous. Celestial Venerable, be careful. The treasures in the mine are psychic, especially the divine stones here. They have a form but no substance and often roam around, so it's not easy to find them. The raw stones are even more elusive. I've been ordered to guard this place and have seen the raw stones three times, but they always escape."
Qin Mu gave his thanks and Xiu Hong Su retreated.
Qin Mu walked into the depths of the mine and saw a pure white fog in front of him. In the fog, there were a few human figures standing there. They had a form but no substance. They should be miners who were mining divine stones and had been assimilated by the mine.
Qin Mu walked forward and saw human figures standing in the fog with their mouths open, shouting at him silently.
Qin Mu didn't mind and continued to move forward. He suddenly stopped when he passed through a patch of fog and said with a smile, "Little Seven, you also came? Are you sending me into the mine?"
Behind him, a white cat walked over silently and appeared behind him.
